My screen protectors from ebay and they were short of the 4"7 inch screen at the top and short at the side however they were too big for the 5S. Went to the O2 shop today and got another two and again they fit better but are short of covering the curved glass.

Anybody else had this issue?

Nothing except a wet apply protector will stick to the curved screen. That is why the protectors you have don't cover the screen 100%.

None will fit right. And if they do they will have a crease in them. Welcome to curved screen.

They were never going to cover the entire screen including the curve.:rolleyes:

Yup, a screen protector will never fit the curved edges of the 6 screen. Basically they will all look pretty bad. I'm using AppleCare+ to protect my screen. :)
